's campaign manager and the rest of the team for the ground game they pulled together which the romney team laughed at first. they are not laughing now. >> mark. >> thank you. magnificent. >> is this it? >> let's see what conac has given us. the biggest winner of 2012 vladimir putin. he overcame massive opposition protests, maneuvered through constitutional loopholes, served as president, then prime minister. and then when re-elected as president again of planet earth's biggest nation, russia. vladimir putin biggest winner of 2012. >> "biggest loser," pat? >> general david petraeus. cia most famous general of his generation caught in a honey trap and kwon. >> the nra national rifle association which has no answer to why americans should be allowed to buy and possess assault weapons with rounds they can shoot off and kill little children. >> mark. >> the 23 million americans who remain out of work and have been out of work for a long period of time. >> seldom aidle son who backed candidates with millions of dollars, including mitt romney, and though lost. >> how many millions? >> all total?
. >> who have been vetted? >> romney, paw lenty and trying to vet bloomberg. >> none of them. >> obama changed the entire dynamic. it is a changed year, sir. we desperately need a game changing pick. none of these middle aged white guys are game changers. >> ed harris is just remarkable. john mccain didn't always come across so well in the book. times when he was fumbling through papers, going with bernanke and paulson about the melt down that seems every bit as disconnected. this movie he comes across as 100% grade a all american hero. why did he make that decision? >> i admire john mccain and admire especially early john mccain and was a fan for years and i think he found himself in a very tough pickle in the beginning of this story. obama was surging in the polls. it was all kind of going to a very tough place when he had to make the decision. i felt i want the audience to be in his shoes and look at the dilemma he faced. especially when people say you can take this risky choice or you can lose. i want people to relate with them at that moment. casting ed harris is part of it. i thi
bet. dagen: what went wrong with the romney campaign? you will not believe what his son has to say about his father's reluctance to even run for president in the first place. dennis: plus, a dentist fires an assistant for being too attractive. the iowa supreme court rules it legal. will this spread? dagen: on this final shopping day before christmas, it's been a rough one this holiday season, stores don't seem that busy. dagen: merry christmas and it is all about stocks now and every 15 minutes even on christmas eve. nicole, stocks still in the red. nicole: that's right. we're seeing the dow right now at 13,142. that's a loss of about 1/3 of 1%. much like the s&p 500 and the tech heavy nasdaq composite, all three are pulling back a little bit, when you speak of the broader markets, though, when you look at the dow, we have been up four of the last five trading weeks. the trend has been to the upside. but still concerns now from washington about washington, about the fiscal cliff, traders of course don't think anything is getting settled today. they are even talking about the fact t
on either ticket. although there wasn't a lot of god talk from president obama or mitt romney, grassroots religious groups were active on both sides. evangelical voters were divided dung t primary season, but in the end, they rallied around romney, despite some concerns about voting for a mormon candidate. still, their support didn't put him over the top. obama narrowly won the catholic vote, thanks to a strong showing among latino catholics. the u.s. catholic bishops waged an active campaign against the obama administration's decision to require employers, including many faith-based employers, to provide free coverage of contraceptive services. the bishops said that would be a violation of religio freedom. the administration tried to offer a compromise, but the bishops, joined by many evangelical groups, said the compromise didn't go far enough. several religious institutions filed legal challenges to the policy. this summer, the bishops organized what they called a "fortnight for freedom" to highlight their concerns. faith-based groups continued to be divided over economic issues. conse
food b ban. david: take a look at this quote about romney. quote he wanted to be president less than anyone i've met in my life. he had no desire to run. now that is from his son, tagg romney about his father. he said that governor romney had to be persuaded to run by his wife and tagg. so company, what do you think about this? do you believe it? adam: if tagg wants back in on the inheritance -- [laughter] shibani: what do you think? if that's the case, then everything worked out as it should have in the first place. well, i would beg that his son is probably not the best spokesman. david: i mean i don't think somebody runs for six years straight without wanting the job. adam: of course romney wanted to be president. david: we don't believe you tagg, sorry. well stuart may be out for christmas, but here's something that can get us all into the holiday spirit. take a listen. stuart: two of my beautiful granddaughters will be with us this christmas, abigail and paige are watching right now. this is for you. 'twas the night before christmas when all through the house not a creature was
implications of the romney administration on the issues of cyberwar and detention policy. and understanding romney's position -- >> i will offer some thoughts on that. i do know some of the people who are likely to end up in a romney administration on cyberissues. one of the advantages is you can -- you learn stuff, you are basically as henry kissinger said you are spending the stuff you use janelle and when that is gone so should you be. you come out and people tell you things that might be true as opposed to things they want you to believe and get the decision they want. they have come to a real appreciation of water remarkably penetrated country we have on the basis of cyberespionage and cyberattacks. and a more aggressive approach to this, and governor romney's statement labeling china a currency manipulator on day 1 suggests taking a tougher alignment with china may be an issue, is worth pursuing. we will see not an enormous change but probably a check up in preparation and confrontation, oversight. >> anyone else? >> i suspect on detention policy we won't see a lot of change. we did n
every year federally than we bring in. my question is, let's say by some miracle romney actually wins the election. will there be the political will to come by nation effectively reduce spending and raise taxes to the point we can effectively reduce that, and that's in light of historically low interest rates, that, you know, at some point are going to go up, and china's going to realize our debt's no good. i'd be interested in each of the panelists' comment. >> quickly, is there political will? >> i think the answer is, yes. right now as kevin mentioned, we have the highest corporate tax rate in the oecd, 35%. president obama and governor mitt romney have both come out advocating for reduction of the corporate rate to something that starts with a 2. president obama says 28, mitt romney says 25. if lowering marginal tax rates is good for corporations because of the incentive effect, aren't they good for individuals because of the incentive effect? because there's a commonality on the corporate rate, we might see something happen in 2013 regardless of who's elected. that's a wedge to s
and i think romney will win the election. i think he will push these things democrats support. one of the things we have not is in terms of entitlements, there's this attitude that we must raise the retirement age to 85 and shoot grandma so she doesn't take any more medicare or something like that. they're very positive reforms. i mentioned the cell phones. i can't link it to the same creativity and health care are you create more health care, cheaper health care and a safety net is said of the crazy system we have today? government is friendly aquaculture. but we don't be starving. in terms of food, so with that agriculture produce the food. companies processed the food, everyone from casinos and restaurants and supermarkets and grocery stores of food. people have problems from food banks to food stamps to do with it. why can't we do the same thing in health care? said people get basics and get real free markets. i live in new jersey. you've really got me going on this. in new jersey, with crazy regulations. i can buy perfectly good health insurance policy in pennsylvania and half
and murdoch pretty much shut that door in a couple of sentences. two words from mitt romney during the primary reverberated all the way through to november. the issue was his plan to prevent employers from hiring undocumented workers. >> people who have come here illegally won't be able to find work and over time those people would tend to leave the country or self-deport. >> reporter: the concept of self-deportation was not by itself responsible for romney's dismal showing among hispanics, but it surely greased the skids. also in the category of moments for which romney would like to have had a mulligan, there was this. >> there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. there are 47% who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe they're victims. >> reporter: romney called his remarks completely wrong. they also caused the deepest self-inflicted wound of the election. on the flipside -- >> he's going to be the next vice president of the united states. >> reporter: romney's vp day may well have been the best moment of his campaign. the selection of
of the romney campaign glen hubbard, and president obama's former budget czar peter orszag, among others. >>> also, let me tell you about the biggest success story in latin america. it is not brazil. it's actually much closer to home. then, as the world watches the arab world struggle with democracy, we'll take a look at the problem from an unusual perspective, upside down. how does a country turn away from democracy as eastern europe did 50 years ago? i'll talk to pulitzer-prize winning historian ann applebalm. we focus on decision making. in the depths of the financial crisis, the obama administration had an almost impossible choice -- save chrysler by injecting billions of taxpayer dollars, or let it fail and lose perhaps a million jobs. car czar steve rattner gives us a fascinating inside look. for viewers in the united states, we have a special tonight at 8:00 and 11:00 p.m. eastern and pacific called "tough decisions." >>> but, first, here's my take. announcing that he would send proposals on reducing gun violence in america to congress, president obama this week mentioned a number
again. if we are not growing, then the people in charge aren't doing their jobs. mitt romney made his argument in an explicit part of his campaign. >> economic growth this year slower than last year and last year slower than the year before. going with the status quo is not going to cut it for the people who are struggling today. >> that presupposes that growth and faster growth is a good thing. since the dawn of modern capital lich ism, be they have pondered whether it's even desirable. prominent voices are revisiting those debates asking, is growth necessarily good and is a happy sustainable future with broadly and equitably distributed profitable? joining us to answer those questions is christian pa are renti, contributing editor to "the nation" and chrystia freeland, author of "plutocrat." >> partly because women aren't having so many kids anymore. i mean, pretty soon we're going to be talking about, you know, demographic winter. >> we're talking about that now. >> and one of the things that was assumed, when you're thinking about growth in the future, is assuming what will contin
romney the other night without a speech. so i want to say first that it's such an honor to have been able to be in the same room last night with the finalist who don't need to tell them what extraordinary company they are. this book was done as a labor of love for my husband, who brought me in as a writer, brought me into a rope that i didn't know and made me believe that the stories there could be told. but the work itself was the product of some extraordinary women. it was who believed in me in this book and gave of their time to do it and that is kate medina and london king and all of these ferocious women at random house. i am grateful to them. [applause] i also have to say that this book would not be possible without two other extraordinary women. they are my translators for this project and they risked more than i did to tell the stories. finally, i'm grateful to the courage of the people who allow their stories to be told. if this means anything, i think it's this. that small stories in so-called places matter and one of the reasons that they matter i think is because, because they
this a referendum about his opponent, mitt romney. so if you went out and you asked most americans, do you think barack obama did a great job in his first term? do you want significantly higher taxes? do you want the government to do nothing about spending? are you happy with obamacare? most would say no, but in the end the choice was between a president who said things aren't great, but i'm still going to try to make them better and a guy he painted as not having a plan and not identifying with the average wants and needs of middle class americans and in the end, people decided to stick with the devil they knew rather than the one they didn't. >> paul: so the election, the republican defeat was big, but it wasn't overwhelming in a sense of repudiation, kim, as far as a republican platform and their agenda? >> no, i think the reason, look, this country had the opportunity in this election to once again hand completely controlled government to democrats. everyone in the house was up for reelection and yet, they continued to give republicans, majority there. they liked divided government and i thi
, but the answer that both romney and obama gave was no. no military involvement. the no-fly zone is a stab toward military involvement, but not a full military environment. what would be your answer to a question? >> frankly, this is part -- some of the calculation that went into the intervention in libya was that if we intervene in the rea to libya they're already done this. it makes things -- that's a little bit too flippant. personally if i were in that position i would be in favor of a no-fly zone. i think so with the turks. look, you're doing the same thing. you are repeating history over and over again. and what i think is problematic is sending a certain caliber weapons top position which we don't know exactly who they are. that's also repeating a bad precedent. you don't want those weapons that to fall into the wrong hands. what happens to the 20,000 surface-to-air missiles that were supposedly communal, and -- the exit, the whole other answer to that, but yes. i would think that if you're going to follow that rationale, you know, ultimately the debt would make sense. safe havens. >> i wo
and not just between him and bent romney but a choice between the ideology and different approaches to government and different sets of divisions and values and everything he did in that timeframe he kept trying to tethered to this big idea and when i wrote to the book of course we didn't know how things would end up on november 6, 2012, but i looked at how she developed the governing strategy, and they're really culminated in november, so this is the back story to what happened in this presidential campaign. >> david korn, showdown is the most recent book and we are here at the national press club. >>> robert discusses the role that geography has played in shaping the defense and talks about the role that it plays in the future. this is about ten minutes. >> good evening, welcome and thank you for joining us. my name is richard fontaine. i'm the president for the center of new american security. it's a pleasure to welcome you all here to celebrate the publication of robert kaplan's new book the reason geography what they tell us about the coming conflict in the battle against the s
? >> it has. you know, certainly the equities were discounting a romney victory back in november. got hit pretty hard afterwards. now the stocks are back to where it was prior to the election. in my view, there's not much more major harm that the epa and other regulation can do to the coal industry. but certainly as the economy dictates demand, electricity generation and more confidence, that will be more important than say the epa. the epa has done their damage for the most part. you can never say never but i think most of the negative news is behind coal for the epa. ashley: what companies do you like in particular? >> we talked about the thermal coal for electricity generation and metallurgical coal for steel. on the latter we look at alpha natural resources which is the largest exporter of metallurgical coal out of the united states, mass the most export capacity. on the thermal side the two names to be looking at -- ashley: you like these prices? >> yeah, they have come down quite a bit and we do anticipate a recovery in pricing over the next 12, 18 months for the commodities. and on
youtube video of all-time. number seven, republican presidential candidate mitt romney. >> this election is over, but our principles endure. >> romney ran on his impressive business credentials, but it was his multiple gaffes during the campaign that analysts say helped to seal his feat. remember the 47% comments. >> the 47% are dependent on it. >> and this one. >> binders full of women. >> number six, ex-cia director general david petraeus. >> we have breaking news now coming in regarding the chief of the cia. general david petraeus. >> general petraeus, can you talk with us please? >> the news was unexpected. the reason shocking. petraeus, a retired four-star general had quit his cia post and admitted he had cheated on his wife. petraeus's mistress was also his biographer, paula broadwell. an embarrassing exit from the stage. >> impressive list. that is just half of them. the most intreiguing people of 2012. the top five are revealed after the break. bye dad. drive safe. k. love you.

an affluent dad like bill gates does, like mitt romney does, but still think of yourself as self-made because you didn't inherit the business that made you a multimillionaire from your dad. and that's particularly important playing into how they think of themselves in the world. it's important right now for these guys to be really numerate. one of the things i found really interesting and quite sort of international is this is really the age of mastery of numbers. and my favorite example of this, you know, we're kind of -- that seems to make sense when you think of the silicon valley guys or the wall street guys, but i'll bet you if you sort of in your mind's eye are imagining the russian oligarchs, you know, you think a guy in some fancy italian suit with a mole on one side and guys with guns on the other side, and this is true. [laughter] but he also probably has a ph.d. in math or physics, you know? even those guys. and this is true also of the chinese, of the indians. it's also a really, really global group. and this is another key characteristic, something which is quite different from p
washington times." if you have not heard of this peace we found in the times as well. they say mitt romney's oldest son said his dad never wanted a job. postmortem on the mitt romney campaign. it reports-- john on the democratic line. what is your level of optimism? caller: i am just wondering if we are going to have a new cabinet next year. host: would do you think? caller: we might. maybe things would change. host: any names in mind? caller: no names, just a new cabinet. host: we have another job on the line from massachusetts. caller: i am a disabled american. i have paid into social security system and medicare for 40 years, which it was about 2100 paychecks and a money from my ssdi and medicare was taken out of my disability checks and medicare was not free. if it was not a handout. i bought it. i am one of millions of disabled americans to do that need their disability checks and health care must around with by president obama, harry reid, and john boehner. host: here is a twitter message. a lead story in "the washington post." janesville, wisconsin, independent. good morning. what i
to who these two men are and have no idea what mitt romney's plan for the country was -- you know, a billion citizens united is a disaster, and i talked to jim messina, who was so instrumental in the obama re-election organization. he feels as though -- i hope i am not speaking out of school to say this -- he feels we need a constitutional amendment to protect voters rights and to also protect our collections from the pollution of this amazing amount of money. i agree with bonnie. i do not know if it is an option, but the money is a distraction. it does not to give us good information about who these people are. now, noam chomsky says that the size of a piece of information is to make it as short as it is today is an effective way of censoring, is a censorship to shorten our pieces of information, because it gives us the opportunity to say something that people already know. but the amount of time that it takes to contradict a sort of known perceived consensus of reality and perceived wisdom to disassembled that in to build into someone's mind in an argument an alternative way of
of the pullback came on u.n. how would you respond -- u.n., and how would you respond? >> if mitt romney were elected, he would surely call china is towards a manipulator and his first day and follow through to the commerce department, which adjudicates a lot of these trade completes -- >> were they afraid of that? >> i think they were nervous. at the same time that they know the candidates for president have made harsh statements about china before, during the course of the presidential campaign. they are aware that to all the different administrations over the last 40 years, the relationship has gotten better and there has been some constancy to the relationship. all the administrations have subscribed to the basic tenets of the u.s.-china policy. >> as there following the was quite ait close election. the leaders you engage with every day, what was their sense of what was happening in who they would be dealing with? >> they understood this was a matter of politics, and china has been politicized in every presidential election. there were many people that would be coming to visit china, peo
debate in the subsequent again romney versus obama? >> i don't think science ever plays a larger role and for me that is unfortunate. dividing that al gore would have been a better president? no. someone who routinely exaggerate some of science offends me as a scientist because that isn't what scientists are supposed to be. it can be a truth regularly took information and what we would stretch it to the point of lowercase its still scientifically somewhat accurate who and it's really stretching it here and he did that over and over and over again. his 25 rise in the sea level is assuming the dreamland ice sheet melts and no one knows if that is going to happen or not there's a lot of melting the summer, you know the arctic didn't have much ice at all so this is a problem but it isn't useful to exaggerate which is what he regular leaded and when you are caught exaggerating the problem use the credibility and the science loses credibility, so no i don't think al gore would have been a letter spokesman because i don't think he did a good job at all in the field. >> i actually was here in
toss. do we like mr. romney, mr. obama, prefer the republicans and the democrats. for the mass of people sent the system cannot be debated because everyone agrees, then we focus elsewhere on things like whether you can have a gun in the back of your truck or whether you can approve of being marriage or a whole host of other issues whose importance on not disputing, but are issues that get us away from this thorny problem of how the economics and politics are articulated where they're is a desire of those who run the society that that simply be ruled out of order. >> the corporations that dominate what most people in this country see here, perfecting the art of propaganda and manufacturing consent well simultaneously criminalizing dissent. i want you to talk about the very origins of this which could be traced to the much revered and in my view much overrated founding fathers, the political rally. people talk about them in hushed tones. let's hear what they have to say about these kinds of issues. james madison who wrote with hamilton the federalist papers, principal writing of

close attention to who these two men are and have no idea what mitt romney's plan for the country was -- you know, a billion dollars spent on advertising, citizens united is a disaster, and i talked to jim messina, who was so instrumental in the obama re-election organization. he feels as though -- i hope i am not speaking out of school to say this -- he feels we need a constitutional amendment to protect voters rights and to also protect our collections -- elections from the pollution of this amazing amount of money. i agree with bonnie. i do not know if it is an auction, but the money is a distraction. it does not to give us good information about who these people are. now, noam chomsky says that the size of a piece of information is to make it as short as it is today is an effective way of censoring, is a censorship to shorten our pieces of information, because it gives us the opportunity to say something that people already know. but the amount of time that it takes to contradict a sort of known perceived consensus of reality and perceived wisdom to disassemble that and to bui
over the weekend that you brought us that i was going do -- oh,no. did you see mitt romney did not want to run? >> i saw that. that was in the boston globe. that was a great piece worth reading. then he found out how bad things were going on his ipad. >> yeah. but maybe he didn't want to run because there were times i really kind of thought it looked like he didn't want to run. >> yeah, but towards the end, i thought he did. >> he tried hard. thanks. >> okay. >> come over here. >>> in other news, a dock worker strike on the atlantic and coast could be just days away. port operators have been negotiating with the long shoreman association since march. but the two sides are said to be far from closing on a deal that would cover cargo handling at 15 ports, a 9d 0-day extension to an employment contract. the union has said 15,000 long shoremen could strike a day later. rick scott sent a letter to president obama asking him to invoke federal law in order to invoke a cooling off period. i don't know what the likelihood of that is. i don't know what the president might do. do you think he woul
cuts during the campaign, mitt romney and paul ryan and all the republicans, who wanted to do the exact same thing he did, they jumped on his case for proposing cuts to medicare. so how can you negotiate with a party that isn't serious about its own caucus, and isn't capable of controlling them and doesn't have a serious plan for dealing with spending cuts on its own, because it's afraid to take the heat? nobody wants to cut spending. let's just admit that. but if we're going to do it, somebody's got to take the heat and the republicans have been the party advocating it for so long, so take the heat republicans and tell us exactly what you're going to do. are you going to cut mortgage interest deductions, charitable deductions, federal and state tax deductions? let us know where you're going to do to pay for this debt reduction that you want. >> the fact of the matter is, it's not going to get done with just spending cuts or increased taxes, it's going to have to be a combination of both, and right now the worst part of it is, and i think where we see the instability, especially when it

in medicare savings on the table. the majority of americans, including romney voters understand the obvious, that is revenues have to be part of the equation. this is a question -- why can't we do it is the head scratching question for most people. it's really part of the institution institutional paralysis of congress, you have a filibuster that enables the minority to work their will and stop even consideration of legislation. in the house, the speaker has to bite the bullet and put on the floor a bill that's going to get significant democratic support and some republican support. that's the only way to do what the country needs. >> and still keep his speakership is the trick. >> i think he can. i think the republicans voting no just don't want their fingerprints on this. if boehner puts something on the floor that passes and they can vote against it, they will underspeaker boehner w was -- speaker boehner was doing the dirty work they were unable to do. >> i know you aren't watching the markets closely. would it alter the calculus at all? does it mean we get a framework in 24 hours if we
